Auto Populate Fields With Submissions From Previous Registration Form

  1. So I have a Register from that includes more than the normal fields such as: Company Name, Address, etc..

    I'm using the User Registration addon to map the email as the username etc..

    I also have an order form that asks for most of that information again.

    1) How can I auto populate all the fields that I used in my Registration form?

    Bonus: 2) Is there a way to store this information for the user to see and edit? I'm using the Membership plugin for a members only page.

  2. 1) You will need to ensure the user is logged in. You can make your form visible only to logged in users (there is a checkbox on the advanced tab of the form settings that will require the user to be logged in.) If you do that, you can then use all the logged in user merge tags as your default values. See the documentation here:
    Look in the page for the sections that contains: {user:[meta_key]}

    2) For updating the information, you can use the User Registration 1.5beta version, which has the capability to update a user. To display the information on their profile page, please see this information about extending the user profile
